Metallo-β-lactamase gene blaVIM was identified on the chromosome of four Pseudomonas sp. isolates from a chicken farm, including one Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolate from a swallow (Yanornis martini), one Pseudomonas putida isolate from a fly, and two P. putida isolates from chickens. The four isolates shared two variants of blaVIM-carrying genomic contexts that resemble the corresponding regions of clinical metallo-β-lactamase-producing Pseudomonas spp. Our study suggests that the surveillance… CONTINUE READING
